Naperville Youth Basketball Academy

Practice: Drills, Skills, & Development

The Naperville Park District is offering a modified Naperville Youth Basketball Academy experience this fall that adheres to the COVID-19 guidelines issued by the state. Be part of a team, learn new skills, socialize, be active and have fun! Teams will practice once a week for 75 minutes.  Coaches will use that practice time for drills, skills and player development.  The NYB Academy will take place at Fort Hill Activity Center and a few select practice sites. Participants can register individually or by team; teams may include 6-10 players. Players may purchase an NYB jersey, or wear a white/blue shirt for each practice.  Participants will receive an e-mail by January 20 with their practice time.  Volunteer coaches are needed to help facilitate this program. Please note that per the COVID-19 guidelines, all players and coaches are required to wear masks indoors at all times, including while engaging in sports activities.

On Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011 Naperville Park District officials heard the good news for which they have been waiting for many months: the District has achieved national accreditation through the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA).

The decision was announced at the NRPA national conference in Atlanta following a formal hearing before the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA).

Naperville is only the second park district in Illinois to earn this distinction and the 104th nationally accredited agency in the nation; there are more than 10,000 recreation agencies in the United States. The Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies accredits a handful of park agencies each year that have completed a multi-step process involving a self-review by the agency, a site visit, and an evaluation and formal report by the Commission.

“We are extremely proud to bring this honor to Naperville,” said Park District Executive Director Ray McGury. “It’s an affirmation of our high standards and also an encouragement to continue bringing high quality recreation and parks experiences to our community.”

The Park District’s accreditation process began approximately one year ago and included an extensive self-evaluation by staff and a 5-day visit from CAPRA reviewers this past July. Maintaining the accreditation requires annual reports and 5- and 10-year reviews.

Park District staff members noted that the CAPRA process has helped them see the big picture, focus on long term goals and plans, review plans more regularly, organize documents so that they are accessible and useable, and collaborate more effectively with other departments and outside organizations.
